Have you even gone hiking at night? Come with us and we will explain the stars
Hiking under the stars
As the night will slowly fall, accompanied by the sounds of nocturnal animals we will slowly begin our hike. Together we will reach a charming mountain cottage where an appetizing dinner awaits us. Our guide will reveal secrets and discoveries about the stars and the sky that then influenced and generated stories, myths, and legends in all cultures of the world. After dinner, you will be able to get a closer look at the stars and planets that illuminate the Mediterranean nights with the help of powerful telescopes.
Exploration with Italian Charm
Onboard a scooter, accompanied by a local guide, you will take a panoramic tour of the island in search of beautiful views, unique neighborhoods, and small island alleys. The local guide will accompany you on the trip with stops for knowledge of the local history, as well as customs and traditions with an anthropological study of local life. During one of the panoramic stops, it will be possible to taste local mozzarella.
Lights…..of a midsummer night
The magic of early summer nights and the woods that pulsate with small dancing fireflies.
A slow climb will lead us to the highest point of the island, where we can admire a breathtaking sunset and unique panorama. Lost among the colors and scents of the woods, immersed in total silence, we will descend until we reach a charming mountain cottage. Welcomed by a family of local farmers and thanks to the products they grow, we will have a dinner of simple flavors and traditional recipes.
After dinner, with a professional biologist as our guide, we will begin to explore the magical world of terrestrial Bioluminescence and “Fireflies”. Not everyone knows that these small insects are part of the Italian natural heritage, and that they are gradually disappearing due to pesticides and overbuilding.
Before ending our experience, the pristine forest will give us one last emotion, we will see it pulsing with small flames of the “Fireflies”, which will leave us speechless.
